  • Enjoyed the experience. But, there is A LOT of information to take in! You can leave and come back on the same day if you keep your wrist band on. Which maybe the route to take doing this. Having the wall from the St. Valentine's Day Massacre was amazing to see. By the time we made it to the last floor, I was burned out with the whole thing. There was a lot of people so some things were less accessible. That may have played a factor with the burnout feeling I got. I do recommend checking it out though. Just be prepared for the adventure.
  • Loved it. Surprising how much they have on display and how well they cover every aspect. Give yourself plenty of time to see all 3 floors. The gentleman who met us at the top floor and gave us the introduction was incredible himself! Looking forward to see there nucular DNA lab that they are planning
  • I was excited to visit the museum as most of the reviews on here were good. I know a lot about the mob and depression era gangsters, but this museum is extremely disappointing. If you like reading a bunch of display posters and watching a few YouTube clips, then feel free to pay the $24 admission price. Not only do they lack in the amount of artifacts they have on display, the one piece worth seeing is not real. They claim to have Al Capone's .38 revolver on display, and the real Capone revolver is nothing like the one on display aside from an ivory handle. In fact, the WSJ recently wrote an article that the IRS pulled the gun from their museum due to that is what not authentic. I am not sure how they get away with claiming certain artifacts as authentic and charging admission to see them? Even if they rotate his gun between several different museums, it is wrong to display an non-authenticated piece and claim it as owned by Al Capone. The actual building is amazing with plenty of space for a real museum, but so far, this is not the real deal. Overall a boring and overpriced experience unless you enjoy reading ALOT of information.
  • This museum was so much fun and informative. My boyfriend and I are huge history buffs and we are super into this sort of thing. If you are into mobster history and are a true crime fanatic you will love this place!
  • I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Mob Museum. It takes you through the early beginnings of the mob at the turn of last century, right up until today. You will also meet the many men and women who fought diligently to curtail the activities of the mob. We spent close to three hours here and barely touched the surface. There is so much to see and do. The museum is run by volunteers and they do a great job. Service is exceptional. One of the neat things about the museum, is that upon your entrance, you have to line up for a mug shot, and can purchase it later. If you are on Fremont and are tired of gambling and drinking, head over to the Mob Museum.
